step 1 1. Fold a piece of regular white duplicating paper in half, width-wise.
step 2, flat 2. Measure, on the fold, three inches from the left margin and mark. Measure one more inch and make a second mark. Draw lines perpendicular to the fold that extend on both sides of the fold for one inch. This is going to be the pop-up portion. Cut along the marks but DO NOT cut across the top and bottom. You are not trying to cut out a block, the paper between these cuts is folded to form the pop-up.
